Getting Organized for Christmas

Friday, November 29th, 2013

Not only have I devoured more calories than I care to count in the past 24 hours, but a little anxiety has begun to set in. Crazy season begins today, and this year I’m determined to get the better of it.

I found this free printable from A Pair of Pears to help with my gift organization.

It’s amazing how the simple act of writing down a to-do list and checking it off can really help manage stress.

Do you have any tips for keeping holiday stress under wraps? I’d love to hear how you keep your cool!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Em’s Christmas Decorations: Dining Room

Monday, November 25th, 2013

I am trying very hard to be ahead this holiday season, the first thing on my list was Christmas cards! Now we had an up-to-date photo from Brea Sorrells, I was ready to go. I ordered this card from Tiny Prints, and a cute parcel full of pretty cards arrived within a few short days.

I loved our Christmas card so much, I was inspired to decorate the dining room in a similar look.

I layered the room with craft paper table runner, paper chains and sparkly Christmas decorations.

For details and paper chain DIY see Tiny Print’s blog HERE.
